In 2018 the international videomapping contest in Ukraine will be held from December, 23 – 25 in the framework of the III International festival ODESSA LIGHT FEST. 

III INTERNATIONAL ODESSA LIGHT FEST  is holding a contest among visual artists, 2D & 3D animators, designers and VJs. The task of the contest program is to represent the whole innovational and technical creative potential of Ukraine, provide a platform for competition not just for young specialists, but for companies-brands as well; all in one project.

The key idea of the festival is «Science as a Miracle».

There is a study's subject of visual artists for the Third International Festival "Art Odessa Light Fest", taking place on the both Christmas and New Year eve for the first time. It is rather the most fabulous time of the year. Street illumination has long become an integral tradition of winter holidays. And the heart of everyone, even the most dreary skeptic continues to fade in a childish way, waiting for real miracles during these amazing days. We are accustomed to the daily technology magic, but usually smile, when reading old fairy tales about carpet-planes or silver saucers with golden apples, being able to show what is happening over distant lands. We are surprised when the nearest buildings are transformed into fantastic objects, opening Other Universes.

And this is only a slight sad soul's desire to light. Light, transforming the world, inspiring us to creativity, while the mind's light gives us millions of incredible scientific discoveries, opening the way to universe comprehending with all its wonders. Christmas is a holiday of Good, and the week before Christmas is a time of miracles and magic. We are sowing both our dreams and hopes right now, rejoicing in their accomplishment with each new day. All this would have been impossible without faith in ourselves and humanity, without love and light within us, and also without interaction. Driven by a thirst for knowledge and based on science, we create everyday magic. And the Festival of Light on the Christmas eve reminds knowledge to be light as well as possible. And the light is the magic of Good.
